Solve for Tomorrow’s 2022 winner Ramneek Kaur Ahluwalia, who herself is visually impaired, developed a tech-forward mobility aid that allows users to navigate their surroundings, and this is what she had to say about her experience:
“Throughout the competition, we have been able to work with incredible mentors and have learnt so much from the other finalists. I’m really looking forward to developing MyVision as a tool to help the visually impaired community navigate their lives in a simpler way.”
Can you imagine a world where tech is used as a force for good to improve education, sustainability, social isolation or diversity?
